Ingredients
  • 1/2  cup  butter, softened
  • 1  cup  granulated sugar
  • 1/2  teaspoon  baking powder
  • 1/4  teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt

  • 2  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 1/2  cup  chopped maraschino cherries, well drained and patted dry with paper toweling
  • 36  Kisses cherry cordials or Kisses dark chocolates
  •  Powdered sugar
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in egg and almond extract until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour and the cherries.

2. Divide dough into 36 equal portions.* Shape each portion into a ball around a Kiss. Place balls 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

3. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until bottoms are light golden brown. Transfer cookies to a wire rack and let cool. Lightly dust cooled cookies with powdered sugar.

From the Test Kitchen*
  • To divide the dough equally, pat dough into a rectangle on a lightly floured surface. Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into 6 equal rows then cut rows into 6 equal portions.
  • Layer cookies between sheets of waxed paper in an airtight container; cover. Store at room temperature for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
